I am having a similar problem.

I have tried various nightly builds and I have followed the offline instructions to no avail. I've copied the files in place.

Any help? Also, I'm pretty new to Haiku so step-by-step instructions would be great.

Thanks.

We mostly support the same Networkcards as FreeBSD. So If they have support for them check the name of the driver and if it's added resently.

Here you can se what's the curent version of the FreeBSD driver (9.1) and the name of the FreeBSD driver also.

If it works on FreeBSD and not listed in the list it's not ported and need a ticket in track :)

@gwise= I tried the same things, installing (offline instructions)extra drivers doesn't help

@kim1963= The rtl81xx driver is present in boot/system/addons/drivers/bin but doesnt seem to work correctly...
